The Wild 10 Countdown and Radio Show for August 10, 2011

Arcade Fire is still number one on the Wild 10 Countdown for the third week. There’s no change in from number two to four but those three songs are still getting popular and the album haven’t been released yet. The new entries are The Sheepdogs and Shad.

Radio Show (Summer Edition)
This week’s show consisted of shoutouts, dedications and long songs. Some were funny as I couldn’t stop chuckling with the way I picked the songs.
It was a last minute pick as I had extra time and I decided to play a Chinese version of Careless Whisper for Nat & Marie.
There were two bands I have forgotten to play, they were Data Romance and Teenage Kicks. As for Teenage Kicks, the album was available at CKCU-FM’s music library. I kept forgetting to play that rockin’ band.
Enjoy!
